Segafredo Pairs Cocktails With People

|Each of these models represented a new Segafredo cocktail.|
Six drinks were showcased, each represented by a costumed model that personified the libation. As each model walked the makeshift runway, their namesake was served in Martini glasses.
Scorecards were passed out, as guests rated each cocktail (and model) for looks (from "Seriously? No!" to "OMG WOW!"), taste (from "I'm spitting this out" to "I'm in Heaven"), and strength (from "Too weak, this is a scam" to "I'm definitely not driving").
As scores of onlookers stopped to watch the parade of Carnivale queens, gladiators, and tropical princesses, guests decided what worked (the Caprese Swirl brought to mind a cafe in Roma and the Choco-Nutella Martini was rich in cocoa and booze) and what didn't (The OR-G Martini tasted too much like an Orange Fanta).
